Newbie IMG question?

    I am just starting to try and create my first web page using HTML code (as opposed to a visual editor). I have created a couple of thumbnail photos that then link to the full resolution jpg files.
    <a href="./images/P9020013.JPG"><img src="./images/tn_P9020013.jpg" width="96" height="72" alt="We've had some creepy critters" border="0" align=""></a>

    The thumbnails are displayed inside a table for formatting. When the full res jpgs are displayed they are displayed in the same window and same frame as the original thumb list was displayed. The thumbnails and the linkages all work fine... my problem is with the size of the full scale images when they are displayed.

    I use IE 6.0 and I have my options set so that when I open a image file that is larger than the space in my browser, IE scales it down. If I want to see the full size image I hold my mouse over the image and a little icon in the bottom right corner of the browser appears. Clicking on the icon puts the image in full size. The images from the web pages I have created don't get resized - they are always full size? How do I allow these full res pictures to be automatically resized by the browser?

    Please reply to this forum

    Thanks in advance,
    Bryan

    This is a feature of your browser (and a few others) and has nothing to
    do with HTML. If it does this for your site users it's because they have
    it enabled in their browser.

    Andy - I realize that the resizing capability is a browser option. I'm
    wonderig if I've done something with my pages or images that overrides this
    option? I have this option enabled onmy browser and it works for every page
    I try except my personal newbie pages. My images are always displayed full
    size.

    Thanks, Bryan

    [snip]

    "frame"....
    That might be the key to your problem.
    Try viewing the HTML for that frame as a independent file, without the
    frame set up, then test view the images as you have been.
